Borsec is situated in the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania, and is one of the most renown curative spas in the subalpine, windless, peat-rich county of Harghita. It is listed in the register of historical monuments.

Bottling of Borsec commenced over two hundred years ago; since modernization in 1992, the facility outputs two million liters per month of its legendary "Regina Apelor Minerale SA Borsec" (Mineral Water Queen Borsec).

The curative properties of the water were already known in the 1600s, and for centuries it was transported by carts in wooden casks to be served in the Royal Court in Vienna. It was Emperor Franz Josef who awarded Borsec with the exclusivist title the "Queen of Mineral Waters."

The pH, although slightly acidic, is near enough to neutral to distinguish Borsec from other naturally carbonated waters whose carbonic acid origin tends to create much lower final pH levels in the harvested water.

The Calcium is massive at over 360 milligrams per liter. Magnesium and Bicarbonate are robust. However, the Sodium level is very low for a high mineral water.

Traditionally, Borsec has been indicated for circulatory disease, anaemia, disease of the endocrine glands, nervous disease, rickets, renal disease, diabetes, and even for obesity, in addition to its wonderful and most popular use today as a super-healthy drinking water.

Borsec was awarded a GOLD medal at 2004 Berkely Springs, WV USA International Water Tasting event, for carbonated waters.

The fame of the mineral waters of Borsec dates back to the 16th century. Documents from this epoch prove that the mineral water from Borsec was transported by carts in wooden casks to the royal courts in the year 1594.

Owing to the curative effect and empirical experience the mineral waters from Borsec were bottled in sealed pitchers which were then put into sacks and were transported on horseback to Transylvania, Moldavia, Wallachia and Hungary beginning in the 18th century.

This is by far the best mineral water out there. It's the least salty tasting out of all of them (Perrier, all of the Italian ones) and still has a good mouth feel. We go through about five a week.

Tried this water at the house of a friend and loved the pure natural taste. Glad that Amazon carries it as I have little access to ethnic grocery stores.

Love the water, look up on Google for water certificate for purity and content. Can't find a sparkling water with all the minerals and vitamins that compares.

I had a calcium deficiency problem for years and was regularly tested by my doctor for it. I discovered this water on a trip to Romania, where it literally runs through their taps in the town I was in. When I returned, I got tested, and my calcium level was perfect. Not only that, but I wasn't deficient in any other minerals. I was taking CA supplements for years, and never was my calcium being absorbed. I highly recommend this water to any woman out there who has bone issues. ie: osteoporosis, or osteoarthritis. Get it, and drink it regularly.

Delicious water. Great size bottle. Ordered them once and then noticed when I went to re-order them, they were much more expensive.

Being curious I ordered a naturally carbonated mineral water, Borsec, from Harghita  County, Romania which won a gold medal & proclaimed "The Queen of Mineral Waters" in the International Fair Vienna 1873.  The carbonation is very light unlike Perrier which may now be artificially infused with carbon dioxide since it is so extremely fizzy.  There is a light saltiness along with a trace of calcium for bones & potassium for preventing muscle cramps.  Borsec became the default chaser to the Sapporo beer.  1.5 liters at $2.80 was a deal for the Queen.
